The UQ Global Change Institute (GCI) has announced a second round of Global Change Flagship Projects of up to $120,000 funding, over two years.

Rapid global change is one of the defining features of our time.

While scholarship within disciplines remains a crucial requirement for advancing our understanding of global change, it is not sufficient for solving the scale and complexity of challenges that face us.

For this reason, new interdisciplinary approaches are required to tackle the so-called ‘wicked problems’ that increasingly face us globally.

Recognising this requirement, GCI is inviting proposals from researchers across UQ to work on challenging, interdisciplinary, policy-relevant projects that seek to tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges.

Working with GCI staff, and with up to $120,000 over two years of research funding, your research idea could become one of GCI’s core Global Change Flagship Projects.

GCI seeks researchers who are passionate about finding solutions to global challenges such as food security, water security, global migration, an ageing population, the decline in biodiversity, sustainable development or decarbonising our energy systems and economies.

Applications close: 5.00 pm Thursday, 26 October 2017
